Cancel culture rages on, as big brands line up to virtue signal their loyalty to special interest groups and grow their social credit scores.
Forgetting that humanity has domesticated and used animals since we crawled out of the trees, and we frankly would not be here without such practices, PETA sheds light on the mistreatment of monkeys in Thailand used to pick coconuts.
Thankfully, the world is now aware of the inhumane conditions some monkeys are forced to suffer in Thailand.
Sadly, the child sex trafficking industry is rampant in Thailand, and no one seems to care.
This is the tragedy of special interest groups. A monkeys quality of life is now directly valued higher than that of a child.
In todays podcast, I illustrate this contrast and draw comparisons to other special interest groups within our society. I make the argument to cease funding (with our tax dollars) ANY special interest group which discriminates based on gender, skin pigmentation or species.
Also in todays episode, I tell the story of Ally and how we found her and brought her into our family.
